By: Christine Weiher, Editor, AllFreeKnitting

Most days when I roam the Internet trying to find the most amazing knit patterns to work up, I always wonder what yarn I'm going to use.

That's when I go through all these trusty yarn reviews of super fine yarn, dk yarn and lace weight yarn; they're all great for warmer weather! There are of course so many options out there, so we're here to help make those decisions a little bit easier for you.

Lion Brand Sock Ease Yarn - This Sock-Ease yarn consisting of fingering-weight fiber has more than just the basics going for it. It’s also well made, easy to knit, and softer than its wool/nylon combination might suggest. The aloe finish on the yarn gives it a nice feel that neither chafes your fingers nor gets sticky, as some aloe-finished yarns tend to do.
